  1. Preventing removing from the conversation

    When learning via the internet, the group chat administrator function is urgently needed so that no one can remove anyone from the conversation. Alternatively, a second function that shows who removed you from the conversation. To prevent fooling around. This function is urgently needed.

  2. The ability to see all partners at once

    Please invent the setting which helps change the number of videos on my screen! If I have a chat with 10 people, I can see only 4 of them while the others are just little circles on top of the screen. I need to move them all the time to see everybody.

  3. call admin management

    I suggest the ability to decide group call administrators. to take away the administrator power of some people in group calls. I also suggest activating a call log to understand who removes other people from the call. These functions are useful in conferences and in call management

  4. Group call on Echo Show

    Enable Skype group call on Echo Show! This is extremely important in this period of global emergency and elderly people use Echo Show to communicate with their relatives.

  5. Virtual Background

    A virtual background when having video calls would make the call more private, more discreet.

  7. split audio in recording for each participant

    Please make it so we can split audio of the participants like we can in Zoom. We need this for our podcast, but are can't leave Zoom because of this, or setting up a mixer. But this is much easier.

  8. Add an ability to extend the length of time for incoming call notification

    At times I am unable to respond to an incoming call before it goes to voicemail / forwarding. I would like to have more time to respond to the call. Can you add this feature? Thank you.

  9. Record option

    When we are having a call, when we record it, please give an option to save it in phone memory instead of sending it to same contact or group.

  11. Miglioria videochiamate

    Al team di Skype e Microsoft
    Sono un utente skype e desidero fornire un piccolo consiglio per migliorare la vostra utilissima applicazione. Nelle videochiamate di gruppo sarebbe estremamente gradita la possibilità di poter visualizzare contemporaneamente sullo schermo tutti i partecipanti alla chiamata. Attualmente, se non erro, skype limita questa opzione a 4 persone. Questo credo spieghi, in parte, il boom di altre applicazioni, ad esempio zoom, che permettono di visualizzare tutti gli utenti attraverso una (semplice) visualizzazione a griglia. Stimando molto di più il lavoro svolto dal team di Microsoft e di Skype, da sempre energicamente attivi nel campo dell'informatica,…

  12. Ability to set default for cameras and mics

    We use Skype (regular, not business) to run remote yoga classes during the current lockdown. Most participants are technologically challenged. We need to only have the instructor transmitting video and sound and all others in listen mode only (except having the ability to unmute themselves if they want to say something to the instructor). Currently, when a call begins, and if someone joins late, it is a task to get everyone to shut video and mute mics. While we have announced this, we still run into some students who struggle and this disrupts the class.

    There should be a way…

  13. double feedback!

    Ridiculous! I attempt to provide feedback about something entirely different, and the feedback app itself crashes 3 x in a row!

    Skype - initially when setting this up there is an option (Video) to blur the background. What a great idea, and it works well - during the setup test.

    Then this option DISAPPEARS! Why (rhetorical question)?!?

  16. Les membres d'un groupe (à part les admins) n'ont pas le droit de supprimer d'autres de l'appel

    comment faire pour qu'un participant ne me supprime pas de l'appel
    Pendant les appels, une personne dans le groupe s'amuse a virer les gens. On ne peut pas savoir qui c'est. J'aimerais savoir comment il est possible d’empêcher ce genre de comportement, soit en empêchant l'option, soit en savant qui est la personne qui fait çà, ou autre.

    merci d'avance.

  17. Green Screen

    It would be nice to have a simple way of getting greenscreen on settings to get my own backgrounds (instead of what's behind me right now!)

  18. screen sharing

    As Allowed in Microsoft Teams, Skype too should allow screen sharing during a group call, so these days Teachers can teach students through SKYPE APP
